Rear Hub is wearing a beveled edge!

I have a 97 F350 344500 miles. Just repacked rear bearings and replaced brake shoes. I noticed that the innermost part of the hub is wearing into a beveled edge. Anyone else have this happen to them? What's causing it?

Re: Rear Hub is wearing a beveled edge!

You know those are oil bath bearings, right?................
Didn't happen to get a picture, did you? I think you're looking at the bearing race.

I did not get a picture. It is not the race. It is about a 45¬įangle from out to in, toward the where the seal sits. This is the driver side. The passenger side wore like this about 6 years, 150,000 miles ago. When that one did it, it felt like the truck fell and the weight of the truck was on the bearing, if that makes sense?

I will take a picture of the passenger side in the next couple of days.

I did ask a Ford tech about the passenger side when it happened and he didn't have a clue.

Re: Rear Hub is wearing a beveled edge!

Was the seal trashed?
Any chance you are running wheel spacers?

Re: Rear Hub is wearing a beveled edge!

How tight are you adjusting the wheel bearings ?

Torqued To 65lbs, backed off 5 clicks. So I have been wondering if it is not torqued enough? Or too much. Seal was fine.

The spindle looks good. My theory is that it is not torqued enough? Could the bearing not be seated far enough back? Does that torque just set the bearing on the shoulder of the spindle not quite enough? Or could I be over torquing?
